    Nonesuch Events for the Weekend of February 27–March 1
    Michael Wilson

    Joshua Redman’s Trio, featuring bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Greg Hutchinson, one of two featured on Redman’s recent Nonesuch release, Compass, performs at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago on Sunday. Time Out Chicago picks it as a Top Live Show of the week. “At 40, he’s far from a young lion, having transcended his early promise in spades,” writes Time Out’s Areif Sless-Kitain. “The tenor sax star’s fluid feel naturally lends itself to the textured, playful improvisations at which tonight’s well-groomed threesome excels.”

    Performances of John Adams’s opera Doctor Atomic continue at English National Opera, after its UK premiere earlier this week. The next performance is Saturday night at 6 PM.

It’s part of a program titled 21st Century Movement, to be performed Saturday night, and An All American Season Finale, on Sunday afternoon. The latter also includes Glass Pieces, set to music by Philip Glass and choreographed by the late Jerome Robbins.

    The Rambert Dance Company debuted American choreographer Doug Varone’s new work, Scribblings, set to Adams’s Chamber Symphony, a week ago at His Majesty's Theatre in Aberdeen, Scotland. The company performs the work tonight and tomorrow at Snape Maltings Concert Hall in Aldeburgh

    Germany’s Stadttheater Giessen Ballett gives the world premiere performance of choreographer Tarek Assam’s Feiningers Fugen, set to Adams’s Violin Concerto, as well as to works by Bach and Glenn Gould.

    Philip Glass performs the last of four concerts of The Book of Longing, his piece based on the poetry and images of Leonard Cohen, in Claremont, California, each day this weekend. The performances began last night and are being held at the Garrison Theater, in the shadow of Mount Baldy, home to the Zen Center where Cohen had lived for five years in the 1990s.

    Allen Toussaint concludes his bi-weekly residency at New York’s Joe’s Pub this Sunday at noon. Next week, he begins a short, three-stop tour of California with Keys to New Orleans, also featuring Jon Cleary and Henry Butler. “New Orleans pianist-producer Allen Toussaint has got to be one of the heaviest talents that that remarkable city ever spat forth,” says LA Weekly’s Jonny Whiteside, and these concerts “should serve as mind-rendingly comprehensive display of New Orleans' most bewitching music.”
